The Gulf of Mexico contains 164,600,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000000000 tablespoons of water. Every second, the Mississippi River empties 811,500,000 tablespoons of water into the Gulf.
It's about 0.000000003 times as big as The Grand Canyon
In other words, 811,500,000 tablespoons is 0.000000002880 times the size of The Grand Canyon, and the size of The Grand Canyon is 347,000,000 times that amount.

A dynamic and continuously changing landscape, the Grand Canyon has an approximate volume of 282,000,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000000 tablespoons. The strata of the rock visible in the Canyon's walls display nearly 2 billion years of geological history.
It's about 0.000000003 times as big as an Halley's Comet
In other words, 811,500,000 tablespoons is 0.00000000300 times the size of an Halley's Comet, and the size of an Halley's Comet is 330,000,000 times that amount.
(Comet Halley, officially "1P/Halley") (volume calculated based on 2005 dimensions)
Halley's Comet, the famous comet visible to observers on Earth approximately every 76 years, has a peanut- or potato-shaped nucleus made of rock, dust, ice, and various frozen gasses. The nucleus measures approximately 15 km by 8 km by 8 km, which yields a calculated volume of 270,000,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 tablespoons. The coma of the Comet — the trail of sublimated gasses that give the Comet its visibility — may be up to 100,000 km in length.
